I was born with strawberry blonde hair. In time it lightened to more blonde than anything. After a while it darkened a little. My hair looks reddish in certain lights, brown in others, and blonde in others again. After three years since dying my hair, I decided it was time for a change, yet back to something nostalgic and comfortable for me.
I started to dye my hair red when I was 16. I have redheaded brothers, so many people honestly thought red was my natural color for a few years.
I wanted a color close to my natural color, but a little more red, and I got that. I don’t think it is too different, but it is a good change.
This is the “Before” picture. My hair looks blonde in this light. My bangs were to the end of my shoulders (I always go back and forth between growing them or not). There wasn’t really anything wrong with growing out the bangs, but I didn’t like how I looked with my hair pulled back.
Now Here was after I cut the bangs BEFORE dying my hair (though the lighting here makes it look a bit like how it looks after the dye). I felt as if I was channeling my 4th grade, 9 year old self (which is odd since Leto is 9).
And here’s my hair after the dye. just slightly brighter than my natural color, really! I love it. 🙂
